Pattern: Butterick 4738-View A
Description: Square neck pullover top with length and sleeve variations.
Fabric: Scallop edge lace
Accessory: Black leather Sash
This pattern completely lives up to it's name -- "Fast & Easy"! I cut and sewed this top in like 2 hours! I modified View A, by omitting the bias tape that should have been sewn to the waistline of the top that would incase the lace ties. I wanted to be able to belt the top and have option on what type of belt to wear. Since the top is lace, I also omitted the facings and the fusible interface. I used the lace guide pattern piece to cut the scalloped edge from the fabric to use as the trim around the neckline and voila, it was done!
Pattern: Butterick 4861-View D
Description: Straight-legged, below mid-knee pants or wide-legged gaucho, below mid-calf or evening length have waistband and mock fly.
Fabric: light-weight black and white wool blend tweed
Notions: two 3/4" buttons; 7" zipper
Also while in Anthropologie, they had a great pair of wide-legged gauchos with wide cuff, so I was inspired to do a pair of those too. I never really saw an exact pattern for the style I wanted, and since this pattern was really quick and easy, I decided to just modify it. I used View D, which are the pants, cut off 3" inches on the legs. On the wrong side, I made a 4" wide hem and on the right side, I did a 3" cuff and tacked it down on the seam lines. Also, on the waistband, I added an inside button. Another great "Fast & Easy" pattern.
